Story is the universal tool that enables humans to express, understand and connect. It has a role in the workplace as much as on the stage, it enables us to process and express emotion, something sorely missing from the modern organisations. The Story Wise approach uses story as a tool in 3 key areas:
- Self-Awareness: self discovery, inner reflection, personal history, emotional processing and intelligence
- Meaning Making: persuasion, messaging, making sense, re-storying, vision & values, metaphor, illustration.
- Authenticity: vulnerability, openess, trust, connection, emotional mirroring.
Story crafting is a reflective process that enables us to make sense of our experiences and deepen our connection to who we are and what we stand for. Stories we've shaped can be shared for an amazing variety of purposes.
Story gathering provides insights into culture, emotions and attitudes, while simultaneously allowing people to speak and listen, which deepens connection, belonging and understanding – a culture changing experience. Story gathering also allows the creation of a shared story, for celebrating, preserving and healing group experiences.
Stories are often delicate and require safety, deep listening and honouring to draw them out and keep them strong. Kate Lawrence is an experienced, warm and sensitive host and facilitator of story gathering and performance events, and she is excellent at teaching and mentoring others in this critical skill.
Public speaking, including storytelling as performance, is another facet of ‘story’ and benefits enormously from the guidance and feedback of an experienced coach. Story Wise offers two amazing locations for intensive individual speech development retreats.
Spiral Wise Impact is the flagship Story Wise leadership program, developing inner and outer skills for women change agents, working with emotional intelligence, story, group process skills and public speaking to create confident, skilled and connected leaders.
Programs to develop women's sporting participation, and sporting leadership all benefit from story. Participatory engagement processes, Kate Lawrence's history developing and coaching women's football competitions and teams, and her deep passion and commitment to women's sport are a powerful combination to bring to the task.
